Postville State Bank We Offer A Complete Barking Service Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, Juno 16, 1946 Is "God the Preservei of Man." The golden text is "Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O Lord: let thy lovlngklndness and thy truth con tlnually preserve me." (Psalms 40:11) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. One of the Bible citations reads: "And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling; down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed." (Mark 1:40-42) From the Christian Science textbook is the following-, "Jesus never asked if disease were acute or chronic, and ho never recommended attention to laws of health, never gavo drugs, never prayed to know if God were willing that a man should live. He understood man, whose Life is God, to be Immortal, and knew that man has not two lives, one to be destroyed and the other to be made Indestructible." (p. 369) MISS THOSE ROCKS AND SHOALS!
